It's strategy month here at Retro Encounter, and three of our editors prepare for war as they sign up to join Squad 7 in the beautiful Valkyria Chronicles. Spearheaded by a new Lieutenant to guide us through the month, and joined by a new recruit, the Retro crew covers the first 10 chapters of the game, comparing it to what we all like and dislike in the genre. One things that's safe to say is that all three of us quickly fall in love with the art style and unique presentation. This is a strategy game like no other.

Join Retro Encounter as we get ready to enter combat.

Retro Encounter 18-1: Valkyria Chronicles

Retro Encounter tanks up and readies to defend the small principality of Gallia in Valkyria Chronicles. Initial impression are positive, and while discussion inevitably begins with the luscious art style of the game, we debate whether the presentation and battle system do enough to keep us hooked. We touch on our favourite moments in the first 10 chapters, and what we like and dislike about the battle system in this hidden gem. Join us for this exciting episode of Retro Encounter!

Featuring: Chris Gebauer, Alana Hagues, Nilson Carroll
